3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012-06-22. Very dark brown-black body with a modest tan head. 3+ Mild aroma, mild roasty malt with mild fruity, floral accents to it, sweet malt. 6+ Flavour has a mild sweet malt core, fruity/floral character in the middle, light roast and bitterness in the finish. 7+ Average palate borders on thin, particularly for a porter, but the softness seems to suit it. Pretty quaffable but a touch mild overall. Enjoyable. On Cask at C’est What Summer Festival of Craft Breweries, Toronto

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[4547-20120622] Cask. Mild fruity grains aroma has a hint of something roastier. Slightly hazy, dark brown body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Toasted malt grain flavour has a bit of a funky roast fruit hint to it. Medium-full body. Interesting, I like the coffee hints. (7/3/7/3/13) 3.3
